wishing a clerk would hardly be willing

to find the bottom of the fault, and then

Nebraska newspaper, not pub
lished in Lincoln, we ire glad to
say, is venting a prolonged howl al the
public schools. Hardly a day passes
that it does not contain an trticlc or iw

with inefficiency. In a recent issue it
quotes from an eastern paper a conver

desirable position. All that is asked of
any one is to find out from those who are

We are sorry to say that by some mys
terious way reports have gone afloat that
me very damaging to tlie University
boarding hall. Because of some of these
Inlsic reports a few of those who were
rooming at tin Dormitory lefi it, and
others hourding there were induced to go
el-ewhere. Those perxout who have
said anything 'iainaging about the way
the hall it conducted have done so from
some maliciottb purpose unexpalinablo, or
pei haps, more huh irom p'Tsoiial inter

the truth, al all times will be spoken
about the boarding hall. This term the
